Imitation of Life Construction Company News: Floral Follies
Just about 80% of our doll club attended Piecemaker's Country Store February 19th 
through 22nd. There were 45 people attending and Piecemaker's went all out for us.
The store was decorated beautifully, the lunches were incredible, and we all made
new friends.

See Patti Culea's You Tube "New Project 4" for some good photos!

Next meeting will be March 24th at 6:30 to 8:30 (Tuesday) at Joanne's house for Show & Tell Time. Bring the dolls you made at Floral Follies and also bring a snack to share. 
Carpooling is recommended due to limited parking at Joanne's house. 

Raggedy Ann Tea:

We’ll be discussing the upcoming Raggedy Ann Tea. Put your thinking caps on and be ready with some ideas to share. Our teas are always so much fun. The next newsletter will be a bit more newsy. Your new newsletter person is packing for the last doll making cruise and ran out of time.
The above is an excerpt from the official newsletter. To get the full version, join our group!

"I thought we could have a exchange of all the fabric, trims and things we haven't used and trade with our friends. bring a bag of "goodies" and go home with someone else's. I'll have tables set up and we can go through the goodies and swap, trade or just give away ."

Sounds like fun to me I always love going through other's treasures.
